A Frame Apart
About This Show
It’s Critic vs Screenwriter. Sometimes … maybe … kinda?
Welcome to A Frame Apart, the movie podcast from divergent perspectives under one roof. We’re your hosts, Ariel Fisher and Bob Barrow. Ariel’s a film critic and freelance journalist, and Bob’s a screenwriter. Each episode, we’ll take a look at two movies that have some sort of connection. Sometimes that connection will be obvious, and others not so much. On A Frame Apart, we aim to provide a variety of perspectives on cinema, not only from the standpoint of professionals on different sides of the camera, but as fans of media, pop culture enthusiasts, and lovers of cinema. We will speak passionately about subjects near and dear to us through film, and expound upon larger issues that permeate our cinematic culture and how we consume media. From horror to comedy, and everything in between, every great film is just a frame apart.

Episode 24 - The Shining VS The Shining VS The Shining
To start off 2017, we wanted to do something special. So, in the spirit of going big or going home, we decided to take a look at "The Shining", The Shining, and, you guessed it, The Shining! That's right, folks, we're pitting the novel against the King-supervised miniseries, and Kubrick's vastly divisive masterpiece. So whether or not you've read the book, attended therapy to try and forget the miniseries, or think Kubrick walks on water, join us as we check into the Overlook, and discuss issues with adaptation in The Shining.
Also this week, in honour of the late Carrie Fisher, we get frank about mental illness. As we both live with depression and anxiety, we felt it important to speak openly about the way these issues affect our lives. If you're struggling with anxiety, or depression, or know someone who is, visit the links below. We hope you find them helpful. And remember, it is not a sign of weakness to ask for help; it's a sign of being seriously kickass.
